JR Smith suspended by team for Sixers game due to "detrimental conduct"

In "The King's War", the Philadelphia 76ers just won the first battle, defeating the Cleveland Calivers at Quicken Loans Arena by a score of 108-97. They now lead IN (34-27) by just two games.

Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 23 points and De'Aaron Fox added 21 to lead the Sacramento Kings to a 116-111 overtime win over the Brooklyn Nets.

George Hill tallied just seven points, with Cedi Osman and Tristan Thompson adding six points apiece.

Sure, Embiid and Simmons put on a show as usual, but all nine Sixers who entered the game made plays, including an uncharacteristic three from Amir Johnson, and some vintage taken charges from Ersan Ilyasova, in his first game back in red, white and blue since Febuary15th, 2017. Jarrett Allen had 15 points and 13 rebounds, D'Angelo Russell contributed 15 points and 12 assists and Joe Harris scored 11 points.

A season-high 29 points from ex-Cav Isaiah Thomas helped the Los Angeles Lakers to a 131-113 win over the Miami Heat.


But his 25 points weren't close to enough against a Lakers team untroubled by any defensive effort Miami, who gave up the most points they have allowed this season. Smith is averaging 8.3 points a game in about 30 minutes a night and is a threat from three opponents must respect.

Simmons finished the game with 18 points, nine rebounds and eight assists.

In Portland, the Trail Blazers rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 108-99, moving within half a game of the T'Wolves for third place in the Western Conference. His stance was in stark contrast with his position in the summer, when he was reportedly unhappy at being benched in favor of Dwyane Wade.
